Arnold Otieno Origi (born 15 November 1983) is a Kenyan professional footballer who currently plays for Lillestrøm in Norway and the Kenya national team as a goalkeeper.

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Origi played for Mathare United and Tusker in his home country before joining Moss, where fellow Kenyan John Muiruri was already playing.

In July 2009, Otieno came to infamy in Scandinavia after committing a very obvious dive playing for Moss in a game against Løv-Ham.[1][2]

International[edit]

Origi has played 27 international matches for Kenya (as of February 18, 2013).[3]

Personal life[edit]

Origi comes from a football family. His uncle is the famous Mike, was a professional footballer in Belgium. His father, Austin Oduor Origi, was a long term captain of Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia, and his other uncles Gerald and Anthony were defenders at Tusker.[4] His cousin Divock plays for Liverpool in the English Premier League as well as the Belgium national team.[5]
